what would happen?
he's proposing a situation whereby you're murdering yourself at a younger age. but it's still a seperate person.
i am technically correct, which is the best kind of correct.
cos its considered self-murder
let's say you locked yourself up forever and stopped yourself from going back in time.
but you already did. So then what?
Would the universe just tear in half or something?
and the funny tin robots would came pouring out
as you wouldnt have lived to that age to go back in time when you were older.
hence time travel = STOOPID
that does my head in.
Time is not linear.
There you go.
time is the measure of entropy as experienced by the individual.
Basically you wouldn't cease to exist because you already do exist and have already grown up.
So if you went back in time you'd essentially be a separate entity to you as a child and you killing yourself as a child wouldn't mean you'd never grown up.
What it would mean, however, is that when you got back to the future then, to the rest of the world, you got murdered as a child so nobody would recoginse you as you and accept you were still alive.
So you'd not be able to get a passport or prove identity in anyway, not have a national insurance number and not be able to work legally.
Because time is not linear.
though it is impossible to travel forward. Time is a force experienced by the individual. You can't experience a force you havn't experienced yet.
ALthough to be fair, I'd probably be able to make some money using the tie machine. Or even selling the idea to Microsoft.
FULL PROOF PLAN!
The earth is a cube.
etc etc etc
In an infinite universe time can ONLY be a cycle. Everything you have done you have already done infinite times before and everyone else has done the same as well. If you have not done this the universe would COLLAPSE. This also means that there can never be a FIRST TIME FOR ANYTHING.
otherwise how do you explain the cyclical nature of crops, seasons, our own bodies, etc etc etc
of constant refreshment, death and rebirth. Time is just too big a cycle for any of us to perceive it.
If you are supposing that the cycle begins and ends at the singularity, that is.
I promise you.
happens in one united moment. So it's not linear, but surely this would still cause a paradox.
Didn't you see Back to the Future? It nearly happened!
and you cannot travel through it, and you cannot therefore kill yourself QED
'cos we're in the middle of these moments of something.
It's a nuts concept because what's a moment? 1/4 second? 1/10000000 of second?
I dunno. Relativity is the MOST nuts thing on the planet. I don't understand why everyone isn't pondering thee issues every day, every moment. Even like on the bog and stuff.
will come of it.We have all the knowledge we need to build a moral society,and any advancements that come to benefit us will NOT come from such ponderings,but rather from projects like that one in switxerland,with the big circle thingy...
but it's like a fourth dimension so everything is essentially happening on an invisble line. It's not quite that it happens at the same time (as time is the line) but it all happens simultaneously and at once so you move through time by moving a bit further along the line and if you could jump along this line then you've time travelled.
and it is relative.
to be sure...
but you'd get to meet Crispin Glover.
but it's the end so I don't know what the outcome was.
ending, that ones shit
would it count as masturbation?
and kill himself as a baby, do you reckon he´d do it?
much less hassle.
better to have a crap artist than hitler, despite many people's view on the music of The Wombats.
Cos he was pretty happy with what he was up to up until the time he topped himself.
but going for Russia.
He'd probably change that. Considering all the other stuff he could change, he's a pretty bad egg.
but you would return through time to your own universe so it would be as if nothing had happened.
Probably a resto shaman
I havn't played in over a year cos my computer can't take it any more. My brother quit before me but his account is still working so I could be in luck when I get a new laptop. Maybe finally get to 70... just as the new expansion comes out.
But the last big patch was great, new areas, loads of new dailies. If I wasn't so busy I'd be killering blood elfs in Sunwell Isle right NOW!
I doubt I'll be back before the new expansion though, just need a break from it all. My guild turned into somewhat of a hardcore raiding one and it got a bit much. MUST LOG IN! MUST DO 20 DAILIES! MUST GRIND PRIMALS! MUST GET FLASKS! Gah.
Someone has blatantly read http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/4097258.stm recently.
Anything on a popular news site that ends "..a new quantum model has stated." generally needs to be ignored.
is the only thing I can say on this thread
DID end in 2000, and this right now is all just our collective, dying-moments dream.
You're not going all yeatsian are you? Because he was a bit of a doofus.
that you are a figment of your own imagination
If I was to transport back to my childhood in the mid/late 80s i'd do something totally rad like go to a Rites Of Spring gig or go chat up a pre-fame 16 year old Winona Ryder. Ultimate winner. I definitely wouldn't kill myself.
It's a shame chiaroscuro isn't about too.
I still don't think anyone can talk with any certainty about it, though. So... null and void for me.
like on the simpsons
